At Marlborough we offer a number of curriculum enrichment opportunities. These opportunities are not necessarily available to all children at the same time but as children move through the school they get the chance to take part in some of the things on offer.
Steel Pans – children in Year 4, 5 and 6 are given the opportunity to learn to play Steel pans during lunchtime and Friday club time
Friday clubs – children in Year 4, 5 and 6 have the opportunity on a Friday afternoon to take part in an mixed age group enrichment activity such as singing, sports, cookery, gardening, art and craft or chess. These activities are led by teachers and support staff and children change activities each term.
Singing teacher – we employ a singing teacher for half a day a week. She works with Year 4, 5 and 6 and runs an after school choir. The exceptionally high standards of singing achieved by the children are down to her huge talent and expertise.
Projects – Marlborough has always been fortunate in that we are invited to take part in various projects. Some past projects include a project with Kensington Palace and a project with Classical Opera and the Museum of London called Mozart in London.
Storytellers – Marlborough Primary School has had a very long association with Everyday Magic storytellers and musicians who visit the school every two weeks and tell stories to three classes each term. This year we are in the third year of a three year long project called ‘We are Londoners’ in partnership with Park Walk School, Chelsea.
Habla espanol? –Spanish is taught from Y3 to Y6. Children lower down the school are also exposed to Spanish and encouraged to begin speaking Spanish.
Maker Space – Marlborough has teamed up with the Institute of Imagination and their Imagination Lab with the aim of increasing opportunities for children to think creatively, to tinker, to make and to create. We use our Art and Design studio as our Maker Space.
